Tomato Yellow Cropper
GENUS: Lycopersicon SPECIES: lycopersicum
Heritage Status: New Zealand
Bio-Region of Origin: Southland
Number of Seeds: 15
Description: Indeterminate. We’ve had this in our collection for many years, and it once again came from Henry Harrington in Southland. This plant produces long racines of medium sized very round, yellow, tomatoes, which if grown in the heat and left to fully ripen, or a glasshouse, turn orange. They are super disease resistant and the flavour is average.
Planting Instructions: Plant into trays late September and prick out when first leaves appear at 3cm diagonal spacing. Handle touching the leaves only. When leaves touch, transplant into 10cm deep pots or trays to 10cm diagonal spacing. When 10-15cm high transplant into garden 50cm spacings in rows. Two rows per 1m wide bed. Needs staking.
